    South Korea's president says an investigation into the delivery of a US missile defence system is not intended to reverse its deployment, part of a deal between the two countries.

    President Moon Jae-in says the investigation is to ensure that proper procedures were followed.

    The controversial system, known as THAAD, was installed in Seongju in April.

    Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports from Seongju.
